As you are aware, we are preparing for the opening of a new Annie Purl Elementary that will serve students from the current Annie Purl and Williams campuses. Over the next couple of weeks, Georgetown ISD will be reassessing the bus service area around Annie Purl Elementary for the 2017- 2018 school year. It is the normal practice of GISD that each time a new campus is built or attendance zones are changed, we review the transportation zones for those affected areas. The purpose of this assessment is to create service zones that are consistent with all other schools in the district and provide the best services possible for all students.
Georgetown ISD is offering opportunities during the 2016-17 school year for secondary students to earn credit in academic subjects and for elementary students to accelerate a grade level by passing the appropriate examinations for acceleration.

Based on our original rezoning timeline, we intended to bring proposed attendance zones to the Board for approval at the January School Board meeting. However, additional time is needed to respond to questions and feedback received online and at the public meetings held on January 5 and January 10.

Georgetown ISD offers opportunities for students to earn credit in subjects without prior instruction.
A student may be referred by teachers, counselors, parents, or any adult knowledgeable of the student. Once a student is referred for assessment, a variety of information is gathered on each student. No single test score or referral will qualify a child for G/T services.
Registration opens August 8, 2016, and ends September 23, 2016, at 5:00 p.m. (CT). Examinees who do not register by September 23, 2016, must be registered by campus personnel at a participating campus on the day of testing, if the campus can accommodate them.
